    customized to fit any mission profile. Equipped with a flash/sound suppresser and

    for Sam when infiltrating enemy territory.
                             How to use the SC-20K

    Ring Airfoil Projectile
    A High-Impact, zero penetration projectile designed to incapacitate rather than kill.
                       How to use the Ring Airfoil Projectile
    The Ring Airfoil is much more effective if it hits the head.Hit an enemy in the body
    a couple of times to knock him out.This weapon is very usefull since it is silent. But
    you do not want anyone hearing the "Groan" from an enemy when you knock him out. If you
    do the enemy nearby will rush toward the spothe heard the sound, and that will leave
    another enemy you have to take care of.
    Sticky Camera
    A miniature camera with full pan and zoom functionality, Plus night and thermal
    vision modes. The Sticky Camera feeds it's signal directly to Sam's OPSAT(Pause
    Menu). Ideal for for advance scouting and intelligence gathering. Sticky cams
    are reusable.
                             How to use the Sticky Camera
    If fired into an enemies head it will be an Instant Knockout.They are also very
    useful to use around corners to see what's goingon. Zooming would be a good idea
    to see down a hall clearer. Also,Try to make sure no other enemie's around while
    hitting your target if they hear a "Groan" from the other guard, He would rush to
    where they heard the noise. Making you have another enemy to take care of.
                           More info on the Sticky Camera,
                                       By: Syph
    You can shoot them off the walls or wherever you can't reach them. Also, you can
    stick them onto the helmets of the guy's on the Presidential Palace board the same
    goes with the diversion cam. If you don't relase the gas you can shoot them off the
    wall and pick them back up to use later.
    Sticky Shocker
    A High Voltage discharge coated in adhesive resin. The Sticky Shocker will adhere
    to an enemy and give him an incapacitating shock.
                            How to use the Sticky Shocker
    Fired into pools of water, the Sticky Shocker can neutralize multiple opponents. All
    the Sticky Shocker does is knock out opponents it will not kill them. When there is a
    single enemy, Shoot the Sticky Shocker at him and it will electrocute him. Just make
    sure there is not another guard around, or they will hear the "Groan" of the enemy
    getting electrocuted. And they will rush toward the spot they heard the noise from,
    and that will leave you another guard to to take care of.
    Gas Grenade
    Standard CS Gas Canister grenade can incapacitate groups of enemies. exposure to CS Gas
    causes violent respiratory seizure. Prolonged exposure causes unconsciousness.
                            How to use the Gas Grenade
    This is a powerful gas that will quickly knock out enemies. Try not to step in the gas range.
    If you do, your Health Meter will gradually decrease. This is best to use when enemies are in
    groups. It would really be a waste of a Gas Grenade to use it on one enemy.
    Distraction Camera
    An adaption of the Sticky Camera. The distraction camera has had it's pan and zoom motors as
    well as its vision enhancement appratus replaced with a noisemaker and a CO2 gas canister.
                         How to use the Distraction Camera
    This device can be triggerd to attract enemies with sound and then dispence a cloud of
    incapacitating gas when they are nearby. This is a one-time-use camera if you use the gas.
    You can pick it back up if you don't use the gas. The gas is like the gas canister(Above)
    it will only knock out, but still leaves you plenty of time to hide the body and get out
    of there.
    SC Pistol
    The SC Pistol tactical with single-action trigger and a 20-Round magazine comes
    equpped with a Silencer/Flash suppressor. It's 5.72x28mm rounds offer a good
    penetration against modern body armor,while keeping the weapons weight,
    demensions, and recoil at reasonable levels.
                              How to use the SC Pistol
    This is good for taking out lights, cameras, ect. But it is not that good for
    taking out enemies, because it is a pretty weak pistol. In the later missions I
    would prefer using the SC-20K(Above in Weapons section)for taking out enemies.
    Not the SC Pistol. When you kill an enemy make sure there are no other guards
    around, Because if you kill an enemy when another guard is around they will hear
    the "Groan" of the guard you killed dying. Then he will rush toward the spot he
    heard the noise. And that will leave you another guard to take care of.
    Lock Pick
    Standard set to picks, wrenches, and probes for bypassing standard cylinder locks.
                             How to use the Lock Pick
    Slowly rotate the Left Thumbstick around the outer edge of it's range until you see
    and hear the first pin begin to move. This means the Left Thumbstick is in the correct
    quadrant. Keeping the Left Thumbstick in the correct quadrant, wiggle the thumbstick
    very gently to release one of the pins in the lock. Repeat until all pins are released.
    Laser Microphone T.A.K(Tactical Audio Kit)A Laser Operated microphone integrated in the
    SC Pistol that enables the user to read the vibration off of certain surfaces(Mainly Glass
    Windows). Used to listen in on conversations.
                       How to use the Laser Microphone T.A.K
    It is attached to the pistol, You will need it to listen in on conversations. It turns the
    vibration into sound so you can listen inon conversations. Point it toward the location you
    need to listen in on.
    Camera Jammer
    The Camera Jammer emits microwave pulses that disrupt the characteristic
    signals used in the microcircuitry of surveillance cameras. The Camera
    Jammer operates off a capacitor that must be allowed to recharge from
    it's battery after a short time.
                           How to use the Camera Jammer
    This device jams cameras. When it is not in use it will recharge.This is
    better to use than a weapon because it will save a couple of shots(And if
    you miss a few shots). Then you don`t have to worry about wasting ammo on
    a camera shot.
    Optic Cable
    This flexible Cable/Camera can easily be slipped under doors to veiw the
    other side. Complete with night vision enhancement.
                           How to use the Optic Cable
    This is good for seeing on the other side of doors. If you see an enemy
    on the other side, grab your gun, and if he is turned around try to get
    a head shot. If he is not turned around shoot him anywhere because if
    you don't, you will be laying down in your own pool of blood.
    Disposable Pick
    Unconventional Lock Picks, these Microexplosive-Shaped charges
    deliver a quick impact to any standard lock cylinder that will shatter
    the pins and unlock the door.
                          How to use the Disposable Pick
    These are very good if you are trying to get a quick escape or in a
    hurry. Since you don't have to mess around picking the pins it will
    just shatter them. But they are only one-time-use. So you won't be
    able to use them multiple times.
    Night Vision Headset
    Night vision goggles amplify very low existing light, especially at
    the lower end of the infrared spectrum.
                       How to use the Night Vision Headset
    Simply press the left direction on the D-Pad, Sam will put the night
    vision on letting you be able to see alot better in very dark places.
    It is also ideal to turn them on when it is dark inside to see very
    shadowy places so you can place a body there. Making it impossible to
    see without night vision.
    Thermal Vision Headset
    Similar to Night Vision, thermal vision is an essential tool in low light
    situations. The technology differs from night vision in that it captures
    the upper level of the infrared light spectrum, which is emmited as heat
    rather than reflected as light.
                      How to use the Thermal Vision Headset
    The thermal vision headset is not available in the few first missions.This
    will also let you see through thin objects. This also helps when it's dark
    and hard to see enemies. It shows out heat that come off of other body
    tempatures. And your characters.
    7. Items
    Some objects, like grenades, flares, or other miscellaneous objects in the world,
    can be thrown. To throw an object, equip it and press the "X Button". A series of
    reticles on screen will show your aiming trajectory. Use the Right Thumbstick to
    aim and the Left Trigger to flatten or arch the trajectory. Pull the Right Trigger
    to throw the object or the "X Button" again to abort the throw.
    Wall Mine
    The wall mine is a motion-sensitive explosive device that can be attached to almost
    any surface. To deactivate and pick up a wall mine, wait for the green light.
                             How to use the Wall Mine
    If there is a red light on, don't walk through, wait for a green light. Once it's
    deactivated you can pick it up, and the wall mine is yours.
    Chemical Flare
    Chemical flares are lightweight plastic sticks filled with a binary chemical agent.
    When the inner containers are cracked, the chemical agents mix, causing the stick to
    glow. Useful for attracting and distracting enemies.
                            How to use the Chemical flare
    This is good for attracting enemies, throw it in a dark area, then if he is turned
    around, grab him. And you have him right where you want him, Around your characters
    arms. Take him to a dark place knock him out, and get out of there.
    Emergency Flare
    Similar to the chemical flare, these standard road flares also emit a great deal of
    heat, making them useful for distracting heat sensors such as those found on automated
                            How to use the emergency Flare
    These are good for distracting the heat sensors on the automated turrets. Simply throw
    one on the ground to the left or right and it will shoot the flare and not your character.
    So your character can sneak past the turret on the opposite side of where it's shooting.
    These are also good for distracting gaurds, just use it like the chemical flare. Throw in
    a dark area, if he is turned around grab him, take him to a dark area and knock him out.
    Frag Grenade
    The 14-oz M67 fragmentation grenade consists of a 2.5" steel sphere surrounding
    6.5 ounces of high explosive. Apon detonation, the steel sphere shatters,emmitting
    a burst of high-velocity sharpnel.
                              How to use the Frag Grenade
    Don't be near when this explodes, when it does it emmits little metal peices
    from the grenade.
    Medical Kit
    Standard feild first-aid kit
                              How to use the Medical Kit
    You get these off of the wall in sertain places, these don't bring your health
    points very high, But their good if you have low health. It's better than nothing
    to use.
    Bullet Box
    Find it to retrieve some ammo
                              How to use the Bullet Box
    It will be for your Pistol or SC-20K, the SC-20K you will get later in the game.
    It provides a pretty good amount of ammo, but not infinite, So use your ammo wisley.
    8.In-Game Elements

    from simple keypads that control doors, to automated turrets that detect heat
    and movementand fire on intruders.
    Alarm Panel
    Standard alarm switches that can be triggered by enemies to alert nearby comrades.
    Because of the extremely covert nature of Sam's operations, indcretion with alarms
    can lead to third echelon aborting a mission.
    Automated Turret
    Heat and motion sensing turrets with an indipendent friendly fire(Iff) recognition
    system. Turrets can be hacked from their attached control computer. Either deactivate
    a turret entirely, or disable it's IFF system. With IFF disabled, it will attack Sam,
    but it will also attack enemies. Use the D-Pad to navigate in the attached control
    Surveillance Camera
    Standard, off-the-shelf surveillance cameras that detect movement and have the ability
    to directly trigger alarms. This type of camera is fragile and can be destroyed.
    Armored Camera
    Exept for the bulletproof casing, these cameras are identical to the standard surveillance
    camera. Shoot down lights to get past these.
    Key Pad Lock
    Standard push-button security pads linked to electromagnetic locking systems in a door. Only
    the correct code will allow a key pad locked door to be opened. Multiple failed attemts to

    a key pad code it will appear in your inventory(Pause Menu) in the notes section.

                                       By: Syph
    Once you have eliminated the guy's down in the basement on the Presidential Palace
    go back up to the library and go up the elevator instead of going out the door
    to go snipe Kombayn Nikoladze. You will see two guy's once up to the second
    floor. You can simply run past them or kill them. It's a glich in the game
    so they won't notice you. Once you come out of the elevatorgo to your right
    down the hall where the ammo was on the table. Go through the double doors
    in the hallway where the two dead guy's are with the grandfather clock.
    Kombayn Nikoladze will be standing there. He won't notice you because
    it's a glitch in the game again. You can kill him but you still have to
    finish the gameby sniping the real Kombayn Nikoladze.'

    10.Sam Fisher Profile
    Sam Fisher(The Character you play as)
    Fisher has been on the front lines of espionage in several defining conflicts throughout
    the past decades. He has not only survived, but also excelled in the field of covert
    operations through hard work, insatiable curiosity, and brutal honesty. He has little
    time for polite niceties and even less for lies. Though fully aware and confident of
    his abilities, Fisher understands that his survival has often been a gift of chance.
    He knows he is human and fallible, and he does not want to die. He has a strange dark
    sense of humor. He is quiet, instinctive, and observant: somebody who watches from the
    outside. Combat, espionage, and constant training have dfined his adult life; his tactical
    experience has become part of his instinct. Now, even outside of work he is most comfortable
    on the fringes of societ, keenly observant but still removed.
